Keyte, J (2012) Possessions unlimited. In: Sperkstret International Jewellery Conference, 10-12 October 2012, Bratislava, Slovakia.

Abstract

Julia is a designer, maker and teacher who is fascinated by how we live with objects in our homes. She talked about how she explores this through her work and teaching, and in particular about her project, 'Campaign for Objects in Purgatory'. This project celebrates uncherished gifts, and peeks into the dusty corners of our homes to find out how and where we keep them. Uncherished gifts offer rich potential for exploration, because they often embody a conflict in value: as much as we would like to rid ourselves of them, we feel compelled to keep them! An Objects in Purgatory workshop ran alongside Sperkstret, and conference delegates were able to donate or loan their own Object in Purgatory, and share their stories.
